Szewczyk pipped Oegaard to the post - Tough luck for the young Norwegian

Wojciech Szewcyk (POL)

What a thrilling match in the junior's single elimination stage of the last 16 players in 8-ball individuals. Wojciech Szewczyk (POL) pipped Mikael Oegaard (NOR) to the post with 7:6.

So far it has not been the championship for Szewczyk. Last year's 9-ball and Team Champion and runner-up in 8-ball Wojciech Szewczyk has not yet played up to his ability. But he has still a chance in 8-ball to correct that. Today, he played against Norway's Mikael Oegaard and things did not look too bright for him. Oegaard was a tough opponent who gave Szewczyk a hard time. Most time during the match, Szewczyk was trailing and in the final stage, Oegaard even took a 6:4 lead over the likeable Polish. But somehow Oegaard could not seal the deal. He allowed Szewczyk to keep a foot in the door. With all his experience, Szewczyk managed to make the match a hill-hill situation at 6:6. That probably gave him the momentum he needed. He took the 13th rack off Oegaard and eliminated him from the 8-ball individuals while Szewczyk will play in the quarter-finals tomorrow.

Other notable results include Marcel Fortunski (POL) ousting Finn Eschment (GER) with 7:5 from the 8-ball individuals. Berk Mehmetcik (TNC), the dark horse from North Cyprus, defeated yesterday's 10-ball finalist Tobias Bongers (GER) with 7:4. Bence Varga (HUN) hammered Christian Fischer (SWE) with 7:0.

Today's competition will continue with two more rounds of Team play, starting at 16:45 CET.
